Not much is known about the radio series Moon Over Africa. It is thought to be a South African radio show which aired around 1937 or 1938. There are 26 episodes lasting 15 minutes each. Since nothing is really known about the series we are not sure if there were episodes which aired before, or after, these 26 episodes.
The 26 episodes follow an expedition led by Professor Anton Edwards as they search for the missing city of Atlantis. They follow the directions of a shrunken head which speaks the ancient language of the people of Atlantis and run into many strange dangers in the African jungle.

Is this not the same production company of the Tarzan serials?
I am just curious. It seems that, while there is very little information on this show, does this not sound very much like the same actors and production company as the Tarzan serials, such as The Diamond of Asher and The Fires of Tohr? Professor Anton Edwards to me sounds so definitely to be Cy Kendall, i.e. the fellow who played Atan Thome, and the sound effects sound exactly like the ones used in the Tarzan serials. Even the narrator sounds like the same voice. Is there any other information that would link them? Am I the only one hearing this? I would love to know more about this programme.
